a time for a good third draft. we cannot trace all the defense, all the issues, and the impacts of the war today. we will not do justice for example to a critical set of questions about how we got into the war, and there is a good deal of revisionist history that has been going around this week on that topic. this is i think critical for understanding what happened and why it happened and the central to understanding to avoiding a repetition. it we will not try to treat in detail the impact of the war on the lives of individual iraqis. but we are going to cover a lot of territory, and what for us seemed to be the critical three sets of questions. choosing those, we have one eye on the past and one that is very firmly set on the future. we are asking first what is the state of iraq today, how far towards the u.s.' original goal of a functioning democracy has it come, and what is the outlook for this country in the region, for its neighbors, and that will be the subject of our first panel. we are then going to look at the economic costs of the war. you may remember the president b

defense and how we prepare our civilian and military leaders to deal with future threats to national and international security. i think remains to be seen. there are some major impediments to us learn these lessons. theof those impediments is tendency in the conventional wisdom to view these wars dismissively as wars of choice or aberrations. unless you are going to say that future policy makers will make perfect policy decisions in the future based on your perfect foresight or understanding of the situation at the outset, then we obviously have to be prepared. these are determined enemies in very complicated and burns. the other impediment is just defining -- one of the manifestations is what i call a raiding mentality that has emerged from a misunderstanding of what led to the success in iraq during 2007-2009, during which we had a very good shot consolidating gains after that time and getting to a sustainable political outcome that was consistent with our interest and the interest of the iraqi people. future work mainly is about identifying an enemy organization in conducting rai

not visit. secretaries of defense routinely visit countries where we do not have troops deployed, but it would get everybody guessing, wouldn't it? in a similar vein, i would like to see the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff visit. these kind of visits provide a framework to get at questions like balances, institutions vs individuals, arms sales and their conditions and some useful words of advice, both to those in the ascendancy and to those in the opposition, because as i said, i think all parties need it. one individual who has not yet come of it is muqtada all solder. i am keen to hear your thoughts -- muqtada al-sadr. i am keen to hear your thoughts on him playing a constructive role as a shia nationalist figure and potentially seeking to break further from the broader shia coalition and ally unnis andent with sienese kurds, playing the role of a spoiler. would that be a positive development, in any of your fors, or a prescription even more trouble ahead? >> muqtada al-sadr has been a rather unpredictable player on qi stage.a he came in on a wave of love and admiration b
supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he has to persuade prime minister netanyahu, that in fact he is not bluffing, that the u.s. would take military action if needed and israel presumably would prefer to have the u.s. with them this he can't really do it as easily alone. they're going to try to get closer on the same timeline on iran. and of course there
secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. and so i think going forward, particularly with the saber rattling with iran and what's being talked about with north korea and its belligerence, the american people are going to be very cautious. i should say more cautious than they were in 2003 about supporting another war being waged by the united states. >> our power panel today jonathan capehart, margie o'mara, chip saltsman, thank you all very much. stay with msnbc for continuing coverage of the president's trip to the middle east. >>> coming up next congress works to avoid a government shutdown but no matter what they do voters are giving them a thumbs down. we'll be joined by congresswoman blackburn next. plus, sentencing day for a teen who went on a kil

unrepentant war hawk was deputy secretary of defense. here is what he wrote on fox news website. as a strictly military matter if the war in iraq ended when we got to baghdad, it would have been counted an historic victory. the war went sour after the occupation began. if only someone had thought about that, what would happen after we invaded. back in 2003 he didn't seem too concerned about that. take a listen. >> there's been a good deal of comments, some of it quite outlandish about what our post war requirements might be in iraq. some of the higher end predictions we've been hearing recently, such as the notion it will take several hundred thousand u.s. troops to provide stability in post-saddam iraq are wildly off the mark. first, it's hard to concede that it would take more forces in post-saddam iraq than to conduct the war itself and to secure the surrender of saddam's security forces and his army. hard to imagine. >> ron, i never mastered the ability to speak as if every word of opinion i offer is a fact that has already been received. it's done and there's been a verdict cast. these ne

than ever before. that includes more support for missile defenses, like iron dome. it has saved many israeli lives. the american support for israel is unprecedented. it has never been stronger. that is a sturdy foundation we built on today as he addressed a range of shared challenges. as part of our long-term commitment to israel security, the prime minister and i agreed to extend military assistance to israel. our current agreement lasts through 2017. we have decided to extend it for years beyond. i'm pleased to announce we will assure that there is no interrupting of funding for iron dome. decisions i made last year, israel will receive approximately 200 million dollars this fiscal year. we will continue to work with congress on future funding of iron dome. these are further reminders we theirelp to preserve military edge so that israel can defend itself by itself against any threat. we also discussed a way forward for a two state solution between israel and palestine. i will be meeting with president abbas tomorrow and i'll have more to say on this topic and the speech i will deli

environment. that led to the situation where we have today where we actually get warnings from the defense department, called conjunction summary messages. we actually get warnings in advance, if dod thinks that there might be a collision between two space objections. it took us a long time to connect the basic information that we needed to gather to have the none to the point where we felt comfortable warning people that they might want to take specific action. in this case, moving a satellite. so i think the same situation will apply with solar of the as we get more sophisticated on the impacts then we'll be able to translate those into specific actions but today, that knowledge just doesn't exist. >> senator cruz. >> going back to the discussion about potential meteor impacts i would assume for an impact the most likely place for an impact would be in water given the percentage of the earth that is covered by water. what is the relative severity of an impact on land versus an impact on water and the consequences that would flow from one versus the other? >> depends on the size of the as
